According to the government-run press outlet agency Bolivia de Information (ABI), Arsene was sworn in by Bolivian Legislative Assembly Speaker David Chokhuanka.
CNN According to Espanol, the ceremony was held in La Paz and was attended by leaders of the region and the world, including King Felipe VI of Spain, and the presidents of Paraguay, Argentina and Colombia.
Senior officials from the governments of Nicolas Maduro of Chile, Iran and Venezuela were also present.
Morales did not attend the ceremony but is expected to return to Bolivia on Monday, according to ABI. He is then likely to travel to his rural stronghold in the roof.
Ars will be Bolivia’s 67th president, according to ABI. Its inauguration follows Bolivia’s victory in the October elections.
Under Morales will come to power as Bolivia’s fast-growing architect, trying to heal the tight-knit former economy minister, political crisis and coronavirus epidemic departments. He is a member of Bolivia’s Movement for Socialism (MAS) party.
Tensions have been high in the country, particularly over the reduction of the majority needed by the Socialist-controlled Congress to pass new legislation and the planned return of Morales from planned Argentine exile, where he has lived since leaving Bolivia last year. .
Morales, who led the country for nearly 14 years as the first indigenous president, reacted widely last year when he fought for an unprecedented fourth term in the absence of a term limit and a national referendum.
After claiming victory in that election, Morales was eventually forced to resign after angry protests, and eventually the police and army withdrew their support. He later left the country.
Ars, who was handled by Morless and a close ally, has said the former president will play no role in his government.
As Minister of Economy, Ars promoted the nationalization of strategic sectors such as hydrocarbons and energy, and pushed domestic production with public investments and subsidies, helping Bolivia grow at one of the fastest rates in Latin America.
